I look around the page and I see lots of mom's from the States, and I know we are all in this oilfield wife thing together, but it would be nice to know I am not alone up here in Alberta.

My hubby works south and west of Grande Praire right now, which we consider far better than the two and a half hours north of Fort St. John that he was before the rig moved.

Hi there! I am a 41 year old mom of two living in Fort McMurray. We first came to Alberta from Nova Scotia, then Victoria B.C, then Barrhead Alberta. Almost all the while, my husband worked in Fort McMurray. The two years I was in Barrhead (4hours away from Fort McMurray), it was like I was a single married person. I can definitly relate!

I live in Beaumont, Alberta...just 10 minutes south of Edmonton, Alberta :) I've been with my Oilfield husband for 4 years now. Just moved out to Beaumont though and I don't know any other oilfield wives...I'm also expecting my first little one next month...so I'm hoping to find some new mom's to chat with as well :)

My hubby is in Ft Mac, but I am in Nanaimo, BC. He used to work a 14 days on/14 days off rotation, but just started a new job that will be 6/6. He has talked about only coming home every second set because the flights are so expensive. That would make it 18/6 for us. We'll see how it goes. :/
